TRS Teachers with Santa (the real one)

Today was the 2014 Santa Fun Run and we were there to warm the Santas up before their run down Rochester High Street.

Each year The Rotary Club of Medway organise The Santa Fun Run to raise money for Demelza and Chyps, two very deserving charities. Money raised allows them to give the holiday of a live time, a trip to Disneyland, to disabled children and their families.

Kayleigh leading the warm up

The day was great fun. KM FM were there with a fantastic playlist. They were also very helpful and played our music for us. There were warm drinks served by the Rotary club and there was even entertainment; this year provided by the Distinction Twirlers dressed in pink Santa outfits and Twirley Shirley (their panda mascot).

 

TRS Teacher, Kayleigh led the warmup this year. She was joined by Rebecca, Gemma and Sophie as well as Two members of the KM FM team. It really is amazing when that many Santas get together to warm up!

The Santa Fun Run Medal

 

After the warm up we went to the finishing line to cheer the Santas back in. They all received a beautiful medal, a running Santa. Well done to all involved!

Last year there were 500 Santas, this year 1000. Let’s see if we can get to the 2000 mark next year!
